what a sight to come home to. i leave my son and husband alone (for the first time for a couple of nights) and this is what greets me at the door. i loved it. a beautiful mess. it showed me that they took time to play together. to build together. to enjoy each other’s presence. that warmed my heart. my heart so raw. my eyes are dried and i feel exhausted. but i’m home. i will go back to see my parents in twelve days. but for now we clean up with mess, and trudge on.
